A woman was killed and her two daughters were injured when two landmine explosions occurred in the Kurram tribal region in the wee hours of Tuesday.

Three women, who were walking on the road, struck the bombs, causing them to explode loudly. Subsequently, one woman was killed and her two daughters sustained injuries.

The injured women were shifted to AgencyHeadquartersHospital.

Following the incident, the political administration in the area cordoned off the site of explosion and a search operation went underway.

Kurram, which is close to the Pak-Afghan border, is one of the seven regions in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), governed by tribal laws.
